Hi, the symptoms of fever, throat pain, dizziness episode, difficulty in walking and speech difficulty points towards central nervous system infection probably meningitis. You should immediately admit the child in hospital for investigation and treatment, child will require intravenous antibiotics and CSF examination. Take care.
